Why should I use ICT in my English class?

It is a useful tool for the teacher:
- a tremendous amount of available documents which can be used in the class
(videos, broadcasts, recordings, texts, images, worksheets).
- It allows to bring authentic language and material to the students.

It is a helpful tool for the students:
- a source of information (for personal research)
- a support for presentations in the class (Power Point)

Using ICT can be counter-productive if the teacher is not trained to use it effectively.
If pupils don’t know how to use it and can’t fold information according to their needs.
If it leads to a focus on the form and not on the content.
